I am getting calls and emails about my ranch over the past week.
Can you take us, we are ready now, where are you located? Will you accept us?
Personally, I am disappointed- I feel like I did not try hard enough to market my place so that I could have reached more people.
This event is exactly why I created my ranch and our program. A safe haven where families store 6 months of food and necessary supplies on my ranch in the event of a crisis. And when the crisis hits- you simply load up the family, your personal stuff and get to the ranch away from the masses. Your food and supplies have already been stored in advance and you have a like minded community to support each other.
Now it’s too late to get to the ranch, you are likely stuck in the cities and have limited supplies. If you do are not limited now, then you may be soon. And, I do not have the supplies and resources alone to cover having the people come now who are requesting that I allow them in now at this late date. I am sorry.
The green house is going strong, the garden is just going in and the freezers are full – And for those who actually took me up on my free offer to prepare with me- well they are in a very save place away from the crowd and the lock downs. in fact, as a farm, we are allowed or categorized “necessary” travel for our people.
There are ZERO cases of the virus in the remote rural county where I am located- That is at this moment as I write this. One thing is certain, we have food, we have wide open spaces and we have – Enough for us who prepared.
As soon as this is over I am making the same exact offer – I am going to ask the same for the people who read this. Simply store six months of 25 year shelf life food on the ranch and if anything like this happens again you will have a safe sanctuary to bring your family.
Of my 18 bedrooms, only 6 people had gotten on board in advance, stored their food and are safely out of the packed and infected cities. No one here is sick yet so they playing golf on our private course, enjoying the shooting ranges, working in the garden, taking care of the chickens, the micro greens grow room or green house, working on line with their regular job just passing the time in the woods and praying to remain healthy.
What a waste of space- 10 more families could have joined us. But few listened to our offer to help.
This virus will pass- people will forget – and one of two things will happen next time.
1. You will have prepared for the next event and made plans for such a situation or,
2. You will be in the same situation next time or perhaps worse off than you are today.
I wish everyone well and I hope to god that people learn from this event. The next one may be many time worse. I am not trying to rub a sore wound here, I am attempting to make you think and encourage you to plan for the future- This may very well only be the start of things to come.
I wish everyone who reads this luck and good health. And please contact me after this terrible event and join up with us for a safer and better prepared future.
